I know... it always totally cracks me up.

And people complaining who didn't vote... meh. Voting is useless in so many states. If you know the other party will win, your vote doesn't count anyway. If they ever reform the system, then it will mean something (like, really, Obama is winning but Romney is winning the popular vote, I call that BS and I'm pro-Obama).

Happened when Bush beat Gore as well. Bush won the electoral college but not the popular vote.

I'm just meh. This election has been meh all around and I dislike both candidates. Dislike Obama more so that's... eh. Just feeling apathetic about the whole thing.

I do think it's BS (either way) that the president isn't chosen by popular vote though. The whole electoral college is just screwy.

Well I think the point is not so much revenge or making up for it as, we didn't care enough about it the last time it happened to fix it, so it is what it is.

All I have to say is that our Electoral College needs a big time revamp. Voting is some states is totally useless, mine being one of them.

We aren't sure yet if the popular vote is going to Romney.

What I am watching says the likelihood of popular vote going to Romney after all is in is low

All the votes haven't been counted yet. Obama may or may not win the popular vote and it's really close. The only reason it is known who won is because of the electoral college.
